The Nimbus is a Cantilevered staircase, also known as a floating staircase, due to the design making it look like the stair treads are floating in the air. This is a stunning visual effect and can add a great modern twist to any space. These staircases feature a metal stringer which is hidden in the wall after plastering, giving the appearance of the stairs floating without any support. Cantilever stairs are very popular within the new-build market, as they are built in combination with the initial wall construction, as opposed to retrofitting which involves a lot more building work.
